Personal profile


Research, innovation, precision livestock farming and animal welfare define the intersection of my research area. I’ve been involved in modelling of complex data both in academia and in the industry. I extract information on animal behaviour and health from biosensors and other sources and connect and integrate that information in models aiming to make the most sense out of data and implement management decisions that improve animal welfare.
